Routerbit search


I have been looking for bits similar to these with the emphasis on The Manor. These are just too much money to spend for one small solid surface vanity top.

I did google extensively. Now I'm hoping this oracle of information, we respectfully call The Wreck, can nudge me into a direction.
TIA

Can you do it in steps? Looks like using a combination of simpler profiles may be able to get you there is three or four passes. Cove bit first, making a deeper than usual cut, followed by a bullnose, then some cleanup? Of course by the time you get it perfect with all the setups it may be cheaper to buy the expensive bits.

Wow... it has sure been a long time since I bought some big bits. I "have a guy" that does my solid surface for me when I have a customer that needs it.
I buy a fair amount of router bits... I didn't realize that they had now reached the stratosphere in pricing. I was gonna whip out a great price from one of my suppliers... I am glad I took a look around first.
If you are going to make it in one pass, you may have found about the best deal around. Different makers have different prices, but you seem to have found the norm on that.
Ouch!

Interesting, it looks like an upside down cross sectin of a handrail. Perhaps a small handrail cutter? But the size would be different.

scribbled:

Can you do the profile using two cheaper regular carbide-tipped bits? e.g. an ogee & and a roundover? Just a suggestion, you know more about this stuff than I do.
You might also check Dimar Canada. I have a soft spot for them since they replied to an email over the weekend & shipped me some planer blades on the Monday. Same stuff as Amana, IIRC, according to a previous post by Rob Lee responding to Charlie Self.

A. Look at "router bits" rather than "solid surface routher bits"
B. Two passes...
#1. ogee on top #2. 1/4 round with fillet on bottom

Sure you want to ask to be told where to go?

Rob...
Which of the profiles on that page is the one you're wanting? Many look as if they might reasonably be cut using multiple (less expensive) bits from places like MLCS.
This past spring I was quoted US$100 for a custom carbide bit. The Velepec bits sould seem to carry a high-price for the convenience of not having to produce a DXF and ordering a custom bit...

bits from places like MLCS.

The Wreck RULES!! Again, many excellent suggestions.
I found what I was looking for at MLCS. Now that I know/recall what the bit is called, searching has become a lot easier.

I musta had a brain fart.. it's a table edge bit. Duhhhhhh. I hate it when that happens.
